what i think is software issue i need some advice what to do and yeah its only tht particular number of vodafone which is not working on micromax a210 but works on moto g4 and galaxy s4

It may not be a software issue. But to be sure, did you, after the reset, make sure to do all updates to the device? There should have been many.

If that doesn't help, and the Firmware and any original apps have been updated. Try running the phone in "Safe Mode" and see if it will work OK then. If it does, then there is definitely something on the phone causing the issue. If the reset you did was only a "Factory Reset" you may wish to consider a "Hard Reset". Now if the problem persists even in "Safe Mode" I would start to wonder if it is hardware and not software.

To get into "Safe Mode" please do the following.

1. First turn off the phone.

2. Next press and hold "Power" until you see the manufacturers logo on the screen, then release the power button.

3. "Quickly" press "Volume Down" and hold it for few seconds until you see the message "Safe mode: ON" or something similar.

4. If you wanted disable it, simply repeat the steps above, and you should see "Safe Mode: OFF" rather than on.


NOTE: Doing this will clear 'all' the data on your phone, so it is suggested you not choose this option unless you have to, or aren't worried about losing anything on the phone.

Be sure you back up any data you want to keep, to a computer or cloud account, before doing the reset.


To "Hard Reset" the phone...

1. Make sure that the phone is actually powered off.

2. Remove your SD card, if there is one in the device.

3. Press the "Power" and the "Volume Up" buttons, together, until you see the start-up logo on the screen.

4. Once you can see the logo, release the buttons and allow the device to enter the "System Recovery Mode".

5. Next use "Volume Down" button to get to the "wipe data/factory reset" option When in recovery mode the "Volume Up" and "Volume Down" buttons are how to can navigate and highlight what option you need.

6. Once you have selected the "wipe data/factory reset", press the "Power" button to select that option.

7. On the following screen, repeatedly press the "Volume Down" button until the "Yes - delete all user data" option is what is selected.

8. Then press the "Power" button to hard reset the phone.

9. If you took your SD card out in step 2, when the device is up and running again, reinstert the SD card.

Try to get your phone software flashed, that is all you need to do. Then try again with a new sim card from your service provider. Hopefully you will get done with it.
